Marble Run

The ‘Marble Run’ has encompassed the objectives of the Community Assistance Program by offering an opportunity for funding assistance to a wide variety of organisations to participate in the monthly Marble Run’ program.
This initiative has proved very popular and each month, three new community organisations are selected from the nominations received. These three groups are then put on our Marble Run display in one of our venues and a bio of those organisations is included on our social media pages.
Canberra Labor Club members are encouraged to select and vote for one of these groups with the marbles they obtain from making purchases in the club. The organisation which receives the most votes (marbles) is allocated funding at the end of that month.
